Does Your Cat Need a Multi-Vitamin?

Many people take health supplements, but the most common one is a multivitamin. This is because people realize that the nutrients we get from our diet are incomplete and we need to supplement to ensure we are getting everything we need to be healthy and well. The same is true for our pets.

Are you giving your pet a multivitamin?

You might not have thought of this before, but just like us humans a multivitamin can be incredibly beneficial to our pet’s overall health. Vitamins, help to keep disease at bay. Remember, diseases often take many years to manifest symptoms and make you ill. Your pet may not have health issues currently but giving them vitamins will help to maintain that status quo.

Unfortunately, our food resources today are deficient in many essential nutrients that used to be provided by the earth's soils which were much richer in minerals and vitamins 50 or 60 years ago. So it’s more critical than ever to be giving our pets a multivitamin even when you are feeding the best quality foods, like a homemade diet or one of the fresh pet foods that I recommend. A good multivitamin can help to balance out the necessary nutrients to keep them really healthy. 

I only use and recommend a multivitamin that comes from actual food sources, not synthetic vitamins made in a lab by humans. The product that I use and love is Nupro Nuggets. It comes in these great, highly palatable nuggets for cats which can be given like treats, and in powder form for dogs which is easily sprinkled over their food. You can find both options on our website here. 

I understand that nothing is a one-size-fits-all, however, so here are a few other pet multivitamin options I like that you can look into for your pets. 

NHV Multi Essentials


Earth Animal Nutritional Supplement Powder

Dr. Harvey's Vitamin and Mineral

Some other brands you can check out are Pet Naturals and Holistapet.

I hope you will now give serious consideration to adding this tool to your pet’s health and wellness routine.

Keep giving your pets the best of natural life!
